The GOP will never, ever, ever forgive Obama for getting bin Laden when lil' ol' Shrub couldn't. It's almost...almost...as bad as the ongoing, in-your-face temerity of his continuing insistence on being black.

If there's one thing that will remove "Presidebt" Baklava 0'Hurlyburly, it's to keep up the pressure on him for claiming to have killed Osama himself without even so much as a thank you for our men and women in uniform.

Yeah, good luck with that. Good on NYT for actually putting the quote from Adm. McRaven about how Obama actually was responsible.

Admiral McRaven...McRaven...Raven...what is a synonym for "raven" that might cause this individual to be disregarded by Obama's detractors...hmm...

Good plan. The president will not run on his record so bring this up and force him to. Excellent idea. It's not like the President is going to address this by praising the men and women of the military. While your at it let's talk about how reckless he was dealing with Lybia.

That's so McRaven.

Oh please, the GOP propaganda machine and the so-called "liberal media" are more than capable of convincing 40-50% of Americans that killing OBL was a bad thing.
 
2012-08-16 09:17:51 AM
I can't wait for the ads of Romney saying it's not worth going after bin Laden to start airing.

Well right. Kerry wasn't a boss fight. Kerry was one of the underlings before the boss fight that seems difficult until you hit him a couple times.

Yeah, they've got Bush's advisers. Which is even worse than no experience at all.

The new group, called the Special Operations Opsec Education Fund, using shorthand for "operational security," describes itself as nonpartisan, but some of its leaders have been involved in Republican campaigns and Tea Party groups.

Rustmann and two other key members of the group, all self-described Republicans, have a history of talking openly to the media about national security, a review of articles and transcripts shows.

Rustmann, who had supervised Plame during her early years at the CIA, argued on Fox that disclosing Plame's name was not a significant breach of national security. He discussed details of her training, her career and her cover.

Scott Taylor, chairman of OPSEC, is a former Navy SEAL. An unsuccessful Republican candidate for Congress in Virginia in 2010, he sat down with NBC News last summer for a documentary titled "Secrets of Seal Team Six." The film said the military had urged former SEALs not to talk.

And OPSEC member Chad Kolton, a former spokesman for the director of National Intelligence during the George W. Bush administration, helped make the office "more accessible to reporters, including regular off-the-record briefings by senior analysts on global hot spots," according to a newswire report that announced his departure to form a communications firm.

Pipe down Obama. Schmoozing with the media is our job.

This is so easy for Obama to fight back against. There is plenty of video of him thanking Seal Team Six immediately after the raid. It also gives him the opportunity to bring up all the other terrorists that have been smoked on his watch. Oh let's not forget he gave the orders to have ST6 take out the pirates too.
 
2012-08-16 09:52:51 AM
The death of bin Laden is the worst thing that's happened to the GOP in 10 years.

I'm confused. What's there to swift boat? It was a completely successful mission with no casualties, wasnt it?

and the GOP leader rush limbaugh sided with the pirates - terrorists who were holding americans hostage. this is how much the GOP hates america.

when the success of your foreign policy is killing OBL, you don't have much to run on.

besides, Obama didn't do that. The people that built the planes, supplied the computers, made the bullets, trained the SEALs, etc, did that.

Exactly. They really don't have anything other than blatant quote mining and attacking whatever little nugget they manage to pull out. There's no record or any of the facts they can attack.

It's going to be embarrassing for them, and rightly so.

Exactly. Otangent was barely involved. He shouldn't receive any credit for a successful operation. Lord knows he wouldn't have gotten any blame if it had gone wrong. Not from conservatives, on any case.

These guys are so transparent. The timing is almost identical to the "Swift Boat Veterans for Truth" attack ads. It's like they found Rove's old notes and just started following them, line by line. Too bad they didn't notice that the situation is very, very different this time.

There seems to be general panic in the Rmoney camp. It would be sad if it wasn't so funny.

Zer0Fartbummer shoved the killing of bin Laden down our throats and then spiked the football into the punch bowl. It was unpresidential and made my stomach hurt.
 
2012-08-16 10:28:22 AM
So they're going to run ads reminding people that Osama Bin Laden is currently in the "We gave the Octo-Penised Rapephant more Cialis" suite in Hell because Obama gave the order?
 
2012-08-16 10:30:08 AM
Let me guess how this is going to play out: they're going to run a bunch of negative ads about the raid and the first time Obama replies in any way then everyone on the right is going to start shouting that he's using the raid for political gains and how that disrespects the military.

How dare the President NOT warn Al Qaida that the were coming? How fair is that?

We need to institute a "Take Backsie" rule that resets the playing field, obviously. All the troops go back to their positions, and we let Al Qaida operations resume normal operations, with none of those cheap drone attacks on their leadership. If we're going to fight a war, we have to have rules, and obviously Obama is committed to "winning at any cost" as opposed to a fair fight. We need to tell Al Qaida when were coming for them, how many troops we're sending, and what they're armed with so that the terrorists can plan accordingly. Sheesh, what kind of Commander in Chief doesn't set up a level playing field?

This is an outrage. When he does secret raids, he forces his Loyal Opposition to operate in the dark, and that makes Baby Jeebus cry. It's almost as if he cares more about getting these terrorists than the feelings of his own Congressmen and Congresswomen...
